Hmmm the Ford Manual in the engine specs section says Stud 20NM and Nut 6Nm but in the picture earlier in the manual its shown as 7 -12 Nm for the nut. 7nm sounds a good number. All these were with the OEM cork gasket. The neoprene gaskets usually come with instructions and a recommended torque,
Depends on size and brand $20 to $200+. Cheapies are at Marlows, Kmart, Rocco Bros etc. Better at Repco etc and tools specialists. Cheap are Ok but you will find that you need a range of about three from mini to large to cover all ranges.

Its the famous Datsun 120Y. Jacks favorite thing in the world. Ask the guy for some info, and Im sure he'd be able to tell you a book full... :)
Go the Datto!
PS Jack are u mentioning the humble Datto Stanza in your next book???
hehe well obviously the 120Y is getting a section dedicated to it. The Stanza is a car I don't know so much about. I suppose it was more of a mid-way point between the 180B/200B and the Bluebird. And like those cars, sheer toughness was its forte.
